    It doesn't seem to be... I wasn't a virgin when I got married and neither was my wife (and no I wasn't the first).

    I would say marriage isn't important to sex but sex is important to marriage. I think many won't marry someone who doesn't bring the goods, (for non-virgins anyways)

    I agree. I openly admit that sex is a big deal to my girlfriend. Good sex is something I have to have.

    That said, I don't plan to be married but I am pretty committed right now. I see no reason to be married before having sex. Enjoy life, just don't be bringing babies into the world if you don't want to support them.

    Wifey and I were together 8 years before we got married. We lived together for about 6 of those years. Marriage was something we did to "make it official" what was known for years beforehand.

    People are different and ultimately it doesn't matter what you do.

    My wife and I were not virgins but we did abstain from sex until we were married.

    Greatest decision I ever made, our marriage is strong and God centered. I wish people could understand what a great thing this is for a marriage.

    We have such great memories of our courtship.
    Ignorance is those who disparage believers....12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the LORD—the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.
    13 Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.

    We violate God's laws at our peril, and society's. But it is blessed to follow God's ways. "The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it." Proverbs 10:22.

    That's her. It will be 2 years (officially) in July. I thought I might look back and think I made a mistake, but I definitely made the right choice.

    Not married or a virgin. The two don't have much of anything to do with one another as far as I'm concerned.

    Not a virgin. Hell, I knocked her up twice before marrying her.

    Marriage, as a commitment, to me is a very cool thing. It just has nothing to do with sex for me.

    We lived together for 3 years in college and part of grad school before we got married.

    Nothing like sharing the shelter of a single bed.

    Then, we waited another 3 years before having kids.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    R.W. 09.21.10 I love you.
